Great Black Ceiling

This song was created for Game of Bands round 254 : "Dream Sequence"

Lyrics:

Great Black Ceiling

(Verse)
Laid down to bed, woke up in a dream,
I saw such things that I did never see
I can't wake up, and now it seems
I'm living a lie

I turn my head to look at the sky
And I just couldn't believe my own eyes
A great black ceiling took over and I
Fell over and cried

(Chorus)
What is going on? Why'm I not awake?
How much more of this madness can I take?
This nightmare realm makes me tremble and shake
I wanna scream

(Verse)
And now I see a wide gray band
Lays in front of where I stand
Yellow stripes move 'cross the land
Out to the sea

While the metal bugs roll by
Branchless trees reach up to the sky
And a fiery halo of peach, it shines
Right down on me

(Bridge)
As I wander 'round this green-blade covered dell
I wonder why I'm cursed to be trapped in this hell
Maybe I'll go find someone else lost in the seems
And maybe I'll awaken from this dream

(Verse)
I find myself in quite the qualm
Amongst strange men with two whole arms,
Armor-headed worms sprouting from their palms,
All looking at me

They say that I've gone and lost my mind
But I don't think that's quite so kind
They clearly don't understand that I'm
Lost in my sleep

(Chorus)
What is going on? Why'm I not awake?
How much more of this madness can I take?
This nightmare realm makes me tremble and shake
I wanna scream

Stuck in a world of human feelings
Underneath a great black ceiling
I think I'm trapped, and now I'm reelin'
in the world of a dream

[Exit]
